Did you try --critical ??

Did someone make the mistake of having both pcsc and openct loaded on the same machine?

Did someone load ctapi-cyberjack with out having one of those readers? [I have had this ifd-handler
cause a LOT of trouble that seemed similar to yours, before I learned not to install it.]

BTW if the card reader thinks there is a card, but pcscd can't establish communication with the card
then that is an error or critical.  IIRC you only get the messages like you showed when pcscd thinks
there should be a card physically present.

Does anyone use a smart card with the machine?
* If no, then either
  `chkconfig pcscd off`
or
  `yum remove pcsc-lite`

* If yes, ask your question over on the muscle list, which is where the fellow who maintains pcsc
hangs out and he may have some incantation for you.
